Wouldn’t it be wonderful if every chapter leader took a mini-CAE course to prepare for their position? You’d see them running around with the latest edition of the Association Law Handbook chatting about antitrust, conflicts of interest, copyright, and all kinds of chapter legal liabilities. Ah, one can dream.
But in reality, it’s up to you to teach them how to minimize risks and keep them on the right side of the law. We’ve reached the tenth post in this series on chapters in crisis. So far, we’ve covered these risks:
- Financial mismanagement
- Financial fraud
- Compliance issues
- Data privacy
- Website disasters
- Struggling chapter leaders
- Leadership succession challenges
- Outsourcing and hiring issues
In this series, we assume chapters are subsidiaries, a situation that brings more risk to National, but also supposedly provides more control. Even if your components are independent, you’ll benefit from the advice we share.
